You're literally a salesman.

You may as well be a real estate agent.

Hollywood tends to romanticize being a stock broker and wall street in and of itself. Seems as if most traders independently buy and sell through an electronic platform rather via some grimy sales man.

Cant tell if this post is being ironic, or if OP is simply a naive teenager.

I literally don't see any reason why someone wouldn't just use some electronic platform

What the fuck do stock brokers even do? Are they just the sales people of years past?

That's what I mean, but how do they even exist these days?

OP seemed to say he's "always wanted to be one", but it seems like this isn't even a currently existing profession really

It's tricky to transfer funds of (i think) $100k+

There are some laws and rules and what not where it's just easier to go through a person oppose to some banks website.

How would a person help you here? I've had no issue funding my broker account for my bank account
